Customer Testimonial

By Rob Oliverio, Head Librarian

I chose to subscribe to EBSCO's eBook Academic Collection because I needed an inexpensive and quick way to update, broaden, and supplement my small academic library's existing print and e-book collections. I am a solo librarian short on time and working with a very tight budget. The size and wide subject coverage of this database made it a great choice to meet the needs of my patrons on campus and online.
